allo peoples —
finally got kind of a downtime weekend. everything that WAS supposed to go down’s been cancelled. so i am enjoying a brief reprieve from immediate responsibilities. and doing crazy shit like: cleaning my room. and, in the process, remember all the shit i SAID i was going to do like four months ago before i started the crazed hustle that only a broke musician can know.
well along those lines, i figured i give some evidence that while there’s been basically nothing up on the site Kyle and I have been pretty busy. while mostly we’ve been doing things on our own or with other project we did have one opportunity late-last year to play together on one project: Arthur Lewis’ CD release.
i may’ve mentioned arthur sometime back on this blog. or maybe it was my blog… i can’t be sure, anymore. but he’s a great singer, songwriter, and keyboard player out of new york and i personally love his shit. we met through a mutual friend about two years ago and have sort of been aware of each other since. Well, his EP — If We Were –is available on iTunes and such and if you can, you really should check the dude out.
in celebration of the EP coming out he had a concert back in September of ’08 (who can really remember that far back any more? wasn’t George W. Bush still the President?). and fortunately it was recorded. on video! and then: uploaded to youtube!! i mean, how fantastic is that?! i means i can now present you with… a couple of cuts from the concert. i’m not sure if the whole set is up there, but it might be… i’ve definitely seen two or three songs floating around there. but these two are two of my favorite joints we did that night. if you watch the video you’ll see kyle in the upper right-hand corner. i was just a little further to the right and didn’t make in on to the tape… but you can hear me if you listen for it.
the rest of the details are in the devil… or vice versa. so check this out, peoples. and, until nextime, its fats saying: stay funky.
